[eDebate] NDT scouting info -- please read
Thu Mar 8 00:00:44 CST 2007
What do we want & when do we need it?
[Well, we need all the information you're willing to share as soon
as you can get it to us. Anything to make scouting the tournament easier
will be appreciated by many.]
As far as self-disclosure goes:
**Deadline: Saturday, March 17th.
I know, it sounds early. But, the 17th is really only four days before CEDA
Nats. There is barely any time between the end of CEDA & the start of the

Basic rule: Disclose the quantity & quality of information you'd want from
a team when you are affirmative.
Include at minimum the generic strategies you've deployed thus far, with a
complete outline & full citations as described above.
I don't think anyone expects you to disclose new arguments before you read
them. Keeping 'caselist-able' electronic versions of new arguments is a
great way to help the scouts keep up.
Blank pages are gradually filling with information at
So, send your info (or better, join the wiki & post it) to the person
responsible for your district (see below) as soon as possible!
